TCU expanding graduate programs, no interest in law school
When it comes to its offerings for graduate students, TCU is looking for programs that promote employability and that are a good mesh with what it currently offers.
TCU will continue to expand its graduate programs but that doesn’t necessarily mean a law school is in the works, Chancellor Victor Boschini said.
With the news of Texas A&M University’s purchase of Texas Wesleyan law school and TCU’s past history of looking into a deal to buy Texas Wesleyan, people started to question whether or not TCU was interested in a law school again.
So what can people look forward to for TCU’s graduate programs? More emphasis in the graduate nursing program for one, Boschini said.
“Nursing is exploding in Texas,” Boschini said.
The chancellor also said business is another area where TCU has developed their graduate programs.
The school is more focused on expanding the programs established but has looked into programs such as a law school or a medical school, Boschini said.
Short term, a law school might not be the best option for TCU, alumnus Bob Craig said.
“In today’s economy, the law profession is finding that many of the students that are graduating are having difficulty finding jobs,” Craig, the vice president for Charles Rivers Associates, said.
Craig also said he agreed with TCU’s decision to not get into the market for a law school right now.

Day in the life of a TCU nursing student
Imagine waking up twice a week at 4:30 a.m., attempting to memorize countless patient medications, driving 30 minutes or more to a hospital and spending the rest of your day taking care of a patient and learning about hospital procedures.
Such is the life of a TCU nursing student during a clinical, a real world experience designed to facilitate the acquisition of practical knowledge and skills. While enrolled in a clinical, nursing students wake up while most of their peers are still sound asleep.
